Hi Friend: I think your asking how to replace your water Pump. OK 1st Thing you'll need to do is Drain your Coolant/Water From Your Engine. With A Drain Pan Under Front of Vehicle Below your Lower Radiator Hose. Take the Hose Clamp Loose enough to Remove the Lower Radiator Hose from Your Water Pump.Your Coolant Will Come Out. 2nd Step Remove Your Drive Belt You can Remove this Belt by taking a 1/2 Inch Drive Socket and Correct Socket Size and Put it on The Center Bolt of your Belt Tensioner and Pull the Tensioner to Release the Pressure on Your Belt,While Holding it at that Poition Reach over to your Belt and Take it Off Say Your Alternator or A/C Compressor, Once you have removed it from Thee Release the Tensioner and Now you Can Work the Belt Out And Away From Your Pulleys that it Ran On. 3rd Now You'll need to Remove your Cooling Fan thee should be 4- Bolts and Nuts You'll Have takje all 4 out Then remove your Fan from Engine Compartment. 4th Your Going to Be able to See your Water Pump now You'll Also see that a Bracket or 2 From Your Power Steering and A/C Compressor are Bolted in Front of your Water Pump, So Remove any Brackets Or Components away from your Water Pump. Now that you have Remove anything in the way of your Water Pump including your upper Radiator Hose. You will Be Able to Take your Water Pump Bolts Out.Remeber where your bolts came out ,Some will be a Little Longer or Shorter.and will need to be put back in the same position. Ok Now All Bolts Are Out Of water pump Assembly, It might come right off ,if not just tap it with a Rubber or Plastic Hammer or take a Flat Screw Driver and Pry It off and away from Your engine. Clean the Surface on your engine of any gasket material or anything else.Completely Cleaned. Your New Water Pump will come with new Gaskets ,put some Gasket Sealer on the Water Pump and Put the Ne Gaskets on correctly by Lining up your Bolts Holes.Let It Set awhile,So Gaskets don't Slip when Mounting it to your Engine,Right Before you go to put the Water Pump on,Put a Little gasket sealer on the Gasket Area, Then Lining up your Holes Start Putting Your Bolts Back In All Bolts Should be Torqued at 40 Foot Lbs.Now to Finish installing the Rest of your Parts. Simply Reverse the Removal of The Water Pump. Hope i have helped you Please Let me Know on How my Solution Has Helped. Thank You: From =d_hubbs
No. As both the water pump pump pulley and crankshaft pulley both partially cover the timing belt cover, they have to be removed to get the timing belt cover and the timing belt off. The only bolt you DON'T need to undo (unless you want to change the front crankshaft oil seal), is the centre bolt holding the crankshaft timing belt sprocket on. Only the surrounding 4 or 5 bolts need to be removed so the crankshaft pulley can be removed.
Not too bad,you have to remove fan,to get the water pump mounting bolts.take off the belt,remove the pump.Some people remove the radiator for more room ,this no big deal,just remove the top 2 bolts,remove upper,lower hoses,pull the fan cover off.You don't put RTV on gasket,also there's an small o ring that has to be replace,behind the pump.
detach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery then loosen the 4 water pump pulley bolts be sure to do this before removing the drive belt then remove the drive belt, alternator, and remove accessory drive belts and idler assembly bolts loosen the hose clamp and detach the heater hose from the water pump and then remove bolts from water pump they around $36.00 at NAPA
Let me know if you cannot see diagrams(happens sometimes) or if you have any questions
Just to make sure. I assume that you are seeing coolant leakage from around the water pump assembly.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Place fender covers on the aprons.
Drain the cooling system.
Remove the accessory drive belts.
Remove the timing belt cover.
Use a wrench on the crankshaft pulley to rotate the engine so No. 1 piston is on TDC of the compression stroke.
Turn the engine only in the direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolts, then secure the tensioner over as far as possible.
the belt from the camshaft, tensioner, and water pump sprocket. Do not
remove it from, or allow it to change its position on, the crankshaft
not rotate the engine with the timing belt removed or serious engine
damage could occur. The 1.3L and 1.6L engines are of the "interference
type," meaning it is possible for the valves to contact the pistons if
their reciprocation is not carefully timed and controlled. An engine
allowed to spin freely without the timing belt could bend valves and
scuff pistons almost instantly.
Remove the camshaft sprocket.
Remove the rear timing cover stud.
Remove the heater return tube hose connection at the water pump inlet tube.
Remove the water pump inlet tube fasteners and the inlet tube and gasket.
Unfasten the water pump to the cylinder block bolts and remove the water pump and its gasket.
